Pearland ISD Case Study

When the Pearland Independent School District (ISD) administration wanted to update their district-wide PC operating system to Microsoft Windows 7, they faced the prospect of upgrading 12,000 desktop computers across 28 locations.

Layer 3 Communications and Avaya worked with Pearland ISD to develop a Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) strategy, which would accelerate Microsoft Windows 7 adoption and also allow replacement of computers and other devices on an end-of-life basis.
